Imperfectly Yours

As I was cleaning out a drawer in my desk, I found the lyrics of a song I had written 6 years ago. It’s funny how something I wrote so long ago can still be relevant to my life today. I hope you like it.

And now, I present to you…Imperfectly Yours.

I want to let go
I want to let You know
Every little part of me
Even the parts that shame me
I want to feel
That You are real
I want to scream it from my lungs
That You are the only one
Who really knows me
Because You love me
Why do You love me?
I can't imagine

You created me to be
This emotional mess
Not to impress
Anyone but You
And it's OK
If I can say
I'm flawed
'Cause You're working on me
To make me
Imperfectly Yours

So, I'm letting go
I'm letting You know
Every little part of me
Even the parts I really don't want You to see
And so I feel
So very real
I want to run and hide
But still feel Your arms around me
Holding me close
Don't let go
Please, don't ever let me go

You created me to be
This emotional mess
Not to impress
Anyone but You
And it's OK
If I can say
I'm flawed
'Cause You're working on me
To make me
Imperfectly Yours

What is it I am so afraid of?
Why am I reluctant
To accept Your love?
Why do I push You away?
Why do You stay?

You created me to be
This emotional mess
Not to impress
Anyone but You
And it's OK
If I can say
I'm flawed
'Cause You're working on me
To make me
Imperfectly Yours

Please
Don't ever let me go
